There’s no denying there’s been a real sense of palpable excitement around British born Hip-Hop artist/producer, AKS (pronounced Ay-Kay-Ess).
Heralded as one of the most revered British lyricists by publications such as Hypetrak, Okayplayer, SoulCulture, and co-signed by Roc Nation/Jamla’s Young Guru; the South Londoner’s 2016 sophomore EP, (second project in his three-part Modes of Transport series) – Train of Thought saw the rapper lauded with praise; and earned him two nominations at the inaugural Unsigned Music Awards 2016 (Best Urban Act & Best Album/EP/Record).
Fast forward to 2020 and the “three-letter man” whet appetites for the closing instalment of his trilogy with the motivational single ‘Up & Up (Heavens Above)’, earning the rapper further support from the likes of Capital XTRA’s DJ Semtex (#SemtexSelects), Ellie Prohan (KISS FM) and Hip-Hop legend Chuck D (Public Enemy), asserting the rapper as one of the most promising acts in the UK’s fast rising urban scene.
With a new project, “As Plane as Day: Departures & Arrivals”, in the proverbial wings and the promise of further singles spilling out over 2022; it’s clear that this is one journey that isn’t set to end any time soon for the rap prodigy and the world is definitely within reach for this undeniable talent.
